Community Manager Community Manager

You want to couple your LMS Amesim plant model with a Simulink control system model?

Then, you need to configure both software to enable simulation with interfaces.

Before going further ensure that you already have:

  • A license that enables to use Simulink interfaces for LMS Amesim
  • A license of Matlab, a Simulink software
  • An ANSI C compiler that is supported by Simulink if you are using Linux.
  • Or Microsoft Visual C++ if you are using Windows (click here to see the dedicated video)

Hi, there I found this error while compiling the model - 


D:\Program Files\LMS\LMS Imagine.Lab\v1500\Amesim\AMEcompile.bat initiates a 64 bit compilation


Error in script usage. The correct usage is:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\\bin\amd64\vcvars64.bat"



"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\\bin\amd64\vcvars64.bat" store


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\\bin\amd64\vcvars64.bat" 10.0.10240.0


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\\bin\amd64\vcvars64.bat" store 10.0.10240.0


'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.


System build error!


Please somebody help me on this

The current version of LMS Amesim does not support Visual Studio 14.0. Only the version up to Visual Studio 12.0 is supported. You can either install a former version of Visual Studio or install Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1. You can find the instructions to install SDK 7.1 in the link below:
